A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy groceries.


Coca Group's story

The "COCA" Communal Association is beginning its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Patacamaya Regional Centre. This group is made up of 9 members and is run by a committee which is headed by their President, Madelinne. The businesses run by the Communal Association members are quite varied and include: a local shop, mobile phone sales, and cosmetic sales.

Madelinne tells us that this is her fourth cycle with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution by invitation from a promoter. Currently she is running a local shop and has been doing so for many years now.

She is applying for this loan to be able to increase her stock (to buy general groceries) which she will purchase within her community and later sell them in her place of business. This work allows her to earn more for her family - she lives with her partner and 2 children.

When asked, she tells us that she likes Pro Mujer and she likes the healthcare support she also receives from them.

In this group: Madelinne , Elza, Ivan, Jorge , Mirian Carla , Milena , Basilia , Yhoanina Maricela , Isabel
